COVID-19: A treatment from a Japanese dish? | Digital Trends Spanish

Natto is a fermented soybean dish that is usually served for breakfast in Japan. It is one of the most traditional dishes of this nation and it has always been thought that it helps to have a longer life. Now, a group of researchers has discovered that the extract made from natto can inhibit the ability of the virus that causes COVID-19 to infect cells. "Traditionally, the Japanese have assumed that natto is beneficial to their health," says article author Tetsuya Mizutani, director of the Infectious Disease Prevention and Epidemiology Research Center at the Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology. “In recent years, research studies have revealed scientific evidence for this belief. In this study, we investigated the antiviral effects of natto on SARS-CoV-2, the virus that caus...

A lamp to disinfect your room? This is how it works | Digital Trends Spanish

Even with the effects of the crisis caused by COVID-19, it is not strange to find all kinds of electronic devices that are dedicated to disinfection, be it the cell phone or headphones. It is even possible to buy a lamp to disinfect your room. We have tested the Philips table lamp that disinfects surfaces and objects in minutes, so we share our experience with you. The first thing to know is that the equipment uses ultraviolet light, UV-C to be more precise, with the intention of breaking down the DNA of microorganisms. "The Philips UV-C desk lamp can effectively deactivate viruses, bacteria, molds and spores in a matter of minutes," adds the firm. In his lab tests, he warns, UV-C light sources inactivated 99 percent of the SARS-CoV-2 virus - the cause of COVID-19 disease - on a surfac...

Abdala: Cuba’s anti-COVID-19 vaccine with 92% efficacy | Digital Trends Spanish

According to BioCubaFarma, the anti-COVID-19 vaccine developed by Cuba would have an efficacy of more than 92.28 percent. According to the laboratory that produced the antigen, it would be close to becoming the first immunizer against the coronavirus created in Latin America. In its social networks, the Island's Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (CIGB) pointed out that with three doses the patient would obtain more than 90 percent protection against the coronavirus. 💉 Vaccine candidate #Abdala of @CIGBCuba shows an efficacy of 92.28% in its 3-dose scheme, reports @BioCubaFarma.

Social distance also for our pets? | Digital Trends Spanish

Social distance has become one of the most effective ways to avoid coronavirus infections. It is not a minor issue, considering that the world already mourns more than a million fatalities due to the pandemic. The seriousness of this new health threat is so great that experts point out that social distance should not be applied only between humans, it should also be respected by our pets. This is suggested by a study carried out by researchers from the Swiss veterinary clinic network, Anicura and published in Daily Mail. According to the text, dogs must have a space of two meters from each other, while cats have to stay inside. It is believed that if ferrets, minks and other animals have been infected, domestic species such as dogs and cats could also contract SARS-CoV-2. "The Ce...

A vaccine against COVID-19 developed on a computer | Digital Trends Spanish

An international team led by researchers from the University of Washington (UW) developed an ultra-potent experimental vaccine to reduce the spread of COVID-19. It is a vaccine based on self-assembled nanoparticles built with computer technology from the UW School of Medicine, that is, they were designed on a computer. The vaccine produces neutralizing antibodies to the virus in mice at levels ten times higher than those seen in people who have recovered from a COVID-19 infection. The vaccine also showed good B cell results after immunization, which may end up being key to immune memory and a longer lasting effect of the vaccine. "We hope that our nanoparticle platform can help fight this pandemic that is causing so much damage to our world," explained Neil King, professor of bioch...

Gold mine wastewater to combat COVID-19 | Digital Trends Spanish

They may not look good or look good, but analysis of the wastewater could provide researchers with important information about COVID-19. They can be, for example, a premature indicator of the existence of an outbreak of the disease, as well as provide information on the effectiveness of the adoption of quarantine by a population. "Wastewater is really a gold mine for information," says Jordan Peccia, a Yale professor of chemical and environmental engineering. If researchers can identify traces of COVID-19 in sewage sludge, they may be able to identify outbreaks and better understand how the virus spreads. For scientists, the concentration of COVID-19 RNA per milliliter of sewage sludge can indicate the presence or absence of the disease, as well as the way in which it spreads, eith...

Flu Vaccine Could Reduce COVID-19 Infection | Digital Trends Spanish

Researchers and medical officials are gathering information in the hope of finding a cure for the coronavirus, or at least an effective way to reduce the risk of infection. We still know little about this new health threat so any discovery may be useful, even if it has not yet been confirmed. Preliminary research suggests that a flu virus vaccine can also cause the body to produce broad molecules that fight infection and the virus causing the pandemic. Mihai Netea, an infectious disease immunologist at Radboud University Medical Center in the Netherlands, checked his hospital databases to see if medical officials who got flu shots during the 2019-2020 season had more or less likely to get SARS-CoV-2. He and his team found that workers who received the flu vaccine were 39 percent le...

Maduro assures that Venezuela found the cure for COVID-19 | Digital Trends Spanish

The president of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, assured that the Venezuelan Institute of Scientific Research (IVIC) found a molecule called TR-10 that supposedly would kill one hundred percent of the coronavirus. "Venezuela has achieved a medicine that cancels 100% the coronavirus," said the president through state television VTV, also ensuring that it is "the cure." Maduro also stated that the medicine would act without any type of toxicity or side effects. The molecule was isolated and confronted with SARS-CoV-2 in a study that lasted six months and resulted in the complete annihilation of the virus, according to the Bolivarian's own statements. Thus, Maduro was optimistic that the studies will soon be ratified by the World Health Organization in order to begin mass production of thi...

MIT Designs Mask That Inactivates Coronavirus With Heat | Digital Trends Spanish

The use of masks has been proven to be one of the most effective ways to avoid coronavirus infections. Aware of this, a group of researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has designed a mask that inactivates the virus using heat. The researchers hope to develop this mask incorporating a heated copper mesh that runs on a battery and is surrounded by insulating neoprene. Thus, as the person wearing the mask breathes, the air flows through this mesh and the viral particles in the air are slowed down and inactivated due to this device and the high temperatures. MIT. This mask is expected to be of great use to healthcare professionals or the general public, especially when social distance cannot be respected. “This is a completely new mask concept in that it does ...

Human Challenge: voluntary infection for COVID-19 vaccines | Digital Trends Spanish

The entire planet maintains a fierce fight against COVID-19. The pandemic caused by this disease looms as one of the greatest health threats we have faced in recent times. At this point, with more than a million deaths globally, any attempt to slow the spread of the virus is worth it, even if it includes intentionally infecting some volunteer patients. Scientists from Imperial College have proposed a controversial and disputed method of deliberate exposure, known as the test "Human challenge ". According to experts, this strategy would include deliberately infecting a group of volunteer patients in early 2021, to study how vaccinated people respond to being exposed to the virus. This could accelerate the discovery of an effective coronavirus vaccine and make a difference to the wa...
